AARON: (Telephone Filter) Johnny, It’s Aaron. We won.

JOHNNY: Congratulations! How long was the jury out?

AARON: (Telephone Filter) It didn’t go to the jury. The judge cut it off after The Bomber rested his case and gave us a directed verdict.

Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign


SOUND: Skype rings four times. Caller’s POV.

JOHNNY (Telephone Filter): Hi! You’ve reached Johnny Atsign’s voice mail. If I weren’t too busy, I’d answer this call, but I haven’t, so I must be tied up in some investigation. Or I’m taking a nap. Or I’m fishing. If I’m lucky, I’m fishing.

SOUND: (Telephone Filter): Beep.

PRODUCER: OK, Johnny. I guess this means you’re still out working that new investigation. Give me a call as soon as your back so we can put next week’s episode together.

SOUND: Telephone receiver hung up.

PRODUCER: I guess I’ll have to get one out of the vault.

ANNOUNCER: From Westminster, it’s time for—

SOUND: Skype phone rings once.

JOHNNY: Johnny Atsign.

RULE 5 GIRL: (Telephone Filter) Good evening, Johnny.

JOHNNY: Hello! What’s up?

RULE 5 GIRL: (Telephone Filter) Have you been following The Grouch’s Twitter feed this weekend?

JOHNNY: No, I took the weekend off again. And didn’t you ask me that question last week?

RULE 5 GIRL: (Telephone Filter) Uh, huh, I did. He’s having another copyright meltdown.

JOHNNY: What now?

RULE 5 GIRL: (Telephone Filter) It’s about the book he wrote that he said he didn’t write.

MUSIC: Theme up and under.

DMCA LULZ Du Jour


I received this email from WordPress yesterday afternoon—

IIRC, all of the images that the Cabin Boy™ bitches about in his DMCA notice were published on Twitter. That gives other Twitter users a royalty-free license to republish them. Now, I don’t know whether all of the commenters involved have Twitter accounts, but even use by someone who isn’t a Twitter user or use of an image not published on Twitter would probably be covered by Fair Use as noted in Twitter’s email.

BTW, it was a righteous DMCA notice concerning an image that the Cabin Boy™ foolishly used that forced Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread to flee to an off-shore server.

Failing failures gotta fail.
